The Editor-in-Chief has retracted this article. After publication, concerns were raised about the high similarity between this article and a previous publication from different authors (Duman et al. 2021). Specifically, similarities were identified in the text in the Literature Review and Methodology sections of this article and those in Duman et al. (2021). Additionally, Tables 2 and 3 appear to be copied from Duman et al. (2021). The authors were unable to provide satisfactory source data used in their analysis upon the Editor’s request. The Editor-in-Chief therefore no longer has confidence in the authenticity of the presented data and the originality of the work.
Authors R Ganesh Babu and C Chellaswamy do not agree to this retraction. Authors V Amudha and K Senthil Kumar have not responded to any correspondence from the editor or publisher about this retraction.
